The Arcane Scroll Writer by Mick-o-Maikeru The Arcane Scroll Writer by Mick-o-Maikeru
" Many would debate, which is rarer; a quill made from a feather of an azure phoenix or the golden ink known to breathe magic into every letter it creates. However none disputes the rarity of a magic scroll writer. An arcane art of binding magical properties with scrolls. These scrolls could later be used to cast the spells they contain using less energy then they would have normally required. Although very popular amongs apprentice magicians, these scrolls also served many warriors whom did not posses the required level of magical energy to perform these spells otherwise or by higher level mages whom carried these scrolls to be used in dire situations to preserve their energy. Only a handful of mages have mastered the art of magic scroll writing and are heavily respected amongst magic academicians. "

Im starting to grasp digital painting better. I had a better understanding of the "forms" i used this time however i couldn't resist butchering physics for esthetic reasons in certain parts (for instance. there shouldn't have been a "color red" in a picture using cyan light since cyan light does not bounce off red surfaces). I will try to stay away from mostly cyan light sources for a while and try my hand at something more natural such as yellow light.

Any comment or critisizm is much appriciated!

Someone likes the opening shot to Secret of NIMH.
And that's a good thing.

Interesting description. My story world has no shortage of magic or magic users. Scroll writing is probably required curriculum at a school of magic. Of course so is mana economics. My mage character Ashton would be concerned with a world where magic scroll writers are rare. There'd probably be a good reason for it. Well very good art and interesting take on magic and magic users.
